Hair Thinning in Women

Causes of Hair Thinning:

Losing the volume of the hair is distressing. As per the scientific findings, losing 50 to 100 strands of hair daily is normal. However, when this number rises, it may lead to permanent hair thinning. Some of the major causes of hair loss include the following:

Hereditary:  It is one of the primary reasons for hair loss, which leads to a male and female pattern of baldness. People with a family history may suffer from hair thinning.


Physical conditions: Accidents, trauma, and injuries may lead to permanent loss of hair on some parts of the scalp.


Hormonal conditions: Pregnancy, childbirth, use of birth control pills, and menopause are some of the reasons leading to hair loss among women due to hormonal imbalance. In such cases, the cycle of hair growth comes to a halt but resumes when the hormones level up again. The hair starts growing back without any treatment.


Medical conditions: Some medical conditions like thyroid, scalp infections, treatment of cancer, blood pressure, and heart disorders may also cause hair loss. Alopecia areata in which the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles and stop their growth also fall under this category.


Other than these, poor intake of diet, lack of nutrition, excessive use of hair products, or using low-quality hair care products can also cause hair thinning. Ageing is also one of the reasons for losing the volume of hair. Therefore, it is always advised to have a proper diet enriched with essential nutrients. Protein consumption can enhance the volume, texture, and health of the hair manifold.


Habits that can lead to Hair Thinning:

Not-enough Shampooing or frequent Shampooing:  It’s depends upon the type of scalp you have, oily scalp needs more frequent shampooing than dry and rough scalp, it’s very important to nourish your scalp by properly cleaning it, this help you in improving and maintaining your hair growth. Not cleaning your scalp on regular basis will lead to accumulation of pollutant and oil, which will further lead to scalp inflammation and dandruff causing itching, scratching and finally breaking and thinning of hairs.


Treating your Hair: Don’t be too rough with your hairs while washing, Conditioning or combing. Wash and condition your hairs with very gentle hands and when done use a wide teeth comb to clear the tangles, the less you pull your hairs the better it would be for your hairs.


Smoking: Smoking is considered as one of the leading causes of hair thinning by reducing scalp blood circulation. The damage done to hairs due to smoking can be reversed depending on the frequency of smoking, the time period the person is smoking from and the amount of damage done to the circulatory system. Don’t think of it as quitting; think of it as gaining hair!


Proper Diet: Even–if you are using the most expensive or effective products recommended by your stylist or hair specialist, but not taking a proper diet that includes a balanced consumption of protein, fat, vitamins and minerals you won’t get the kind of healthy hair growth you might expecting. At Dr. Manoj Bachhav’s Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center Nashik, We have assessed a lot of patients who complained about hair loss, we analyzed their diet, and just by changing their diet, the rate of hair loss decreased and eventually stopped.


Styling Tools: Using too much styling tools like hairdryer, rollers, flat irons, or curling on a daily basis can damage your hairs causing breakage and weakening of scalp, thus it is advised even if you are using hair styling products regularly keep the heat setting of all such tools to the lowest point.


Hair Brush: Have you ever wondered that within your hairbrush collection, there must be one hairbrush that must be the favorite that always gives you the perfect results with less or no hair breakage, Right! Always choose the right brush for your hairs, because a wrong hairbrush can do irreversible damage if used for long.


Hair Cut: Especially for women, if you are thinking of growing your hairs long, do visit your hairstylist often to get the ends trimmed this will escalate the process of healthy hair growth reducing damage, breakage and split ends.


Styling Products: Using hair gel and hair spray might enhance your looks for a while, but using such products for longer period of time can damage your hairs, as these products contain a certain amount of alcohol that can make hairs go dry and you might experience hair break or hair fall while combing.

Direct Sunlight: Always cover your hairs while walking out in sun, as direct sunlight can damage your hair outer cuticle and fiber, making your hair more prone to breaking.
